The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (WSLCB) is the primary adult use cannabis regulatory authority in the State of Washington. The executive agency, which also regulates alcohol, tobacco, and vapor products in Washington state, is overseen by a three member board appointed by the Governor to six-year terms. The Board holds regular public meetings and work sessions with stakeholders, makes policy and budget decisions, and adjudicates contested license applications and enforcement actions on licensees. Board members are also responsible for hiring the agency's Director, who manages day-to-day operations.
During discussion following her presentation, WSLCB Policy and Rules Manager Kathy Hoffman revealed she was authoring an interpretative statement regarding Delta-8-Tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-8-THC) which, if implemented, may distill out unanticipated consequences.
